Temperature sensors

The wording « temperature sensor » encompasses various elements, linked to several specific functions of the vehicle. As a result, air temperature sensors within the side mirrors are only used to send an indicative information to the driver. At the opposite, an air intake temperature sensor sends data that will be interpreted by the ECU to monitor the injection timing and the advanced firing position. As for the coolant and oil temperatures, their respective roles seem rather obvious.

In any case, these sensors gather very important information for the engine management, and a malfunction could cause serious damages – for an engine, an overheating reduces dramatically its lifespan. As a result, do not take any risks, and replace your temperature sensors by choosing the high-quality products from EFI Automotive Service.
